Annie Lee was a woman of great faith and character and a talented seamstress and homemaker who had a strong work ethic and responsibility. Mrs. Atkins devoted her life to her family, creating a warm loving home for her loved ones. She helped her husband as a farmer where she tended the land with skill and dedication.

Her attention to detail and craftsmanship were evident in every stitch. She also found solace and expression in playing the piano, filling her home with the melodious sounds of her music. 

Though she may have passed on, the memory of Annie Lee's love and dedication will live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her.
